Book launch, Q&A with author of “Crossing the colour line: Interracial marriage and biracial identity” James Omolo. Start: 19.30

· ABOUT ·
Being biracial invites a myriad of stereotypes and definitions which has been propagated by society. Most Individuals of biracial background at varied points face identity crisis and sense of belonging. Many of them invariably struggle to cope with the challenges posed by how society identifies them racially, because they are not mono racial but are actually torn between two races. The book therefore, covers the multiple realities of racial identity and a sense of belonging among biracial individuals.
This book is designed to understand how Black-white interracial parents categorize and reconcile their children’s racial identity. Moreover, the objective of this research book is also to expose some of the approaches and strategies parents of biracial individuals convey to their children in order to influence or trivialise their racial identity.
The book therefore, presents the research results on interracial marriage, looking at the multiple challenges that emanates from interracial marriage and how parents cope with the dual identity of their children.
